I Took Your Advice

First off, thanks for your comments on my last post….it’s hard when you lose your motivation to do one of the things you love the most. I’ve talked a lot about what running is to me and what I have learned from it in the last little while. Taking time off before a race is a scary thing to do but sometimes it has to be done.

Yesterday, I really wanted to run but just wasn’t feeling it after the girls went to bed. I did a few things and then changed into my workout clothing! Why? Well, I just felt like I needed to move a little, to sweat a little, to do something for myself.

So, I did this:

Extreme shred

Looks like I need some sunlight on these 🙂

I went to my basement and filed through my DVD workout collect and found this one. I’ve never tried it so I thought it would be a good time to do so! I’ve always been a big fan of her workouts…they are hard and work! I popped it in and had the baby monitor on the TV has Hilary was still awake playing in her crib! Lilly was fast asleep.

All the moves where different then the 30 Day Shred or Ripped in 30 so I liked that. I was concerned with the first move being “burpees” – kinda freaked me out for what was still to come. As I got going it wasn’t so bad and it almost didn’t feel like a workout at all. “Didn’t feel like a workout = gonna hurt the next day”.

I finished the workout and felt great…it was just what I needed. I’m still trying to decided if I’m going to run today or not…we’ll see. I am however going to get in a little workout tomorrow at a GYM! Woah…gym you say? Well, I have to be in Halifax for a meeting and they have a Good Life Fitness Gym in the same building. It’s been a long time since I’ve gone to one and thought this would be a good way to change-up my workout and get it in during the day. I can have my evening free to start getting ready for Lilly’s 4th birthday party!

Oh my, we are about to have a 4-year-old in the house!

Thanks again on your comments yesterday, I gotta tell you, this blogging thing is far more rewarding than I ever thought. Oh and by the way….my arms and legs feel like jello today 😉

Ever workout and have it NOT feel like a workout?

Jello arms/legs anyone?

Do you ever hit  up a gym when you travel for work?
